TX Florist Charged In Capitol Riot Asks To Go On Mexico Retreat
A florist from Texas charged after the US Capitol riot filed a motion to ask to go to Mexico this month for a work retreat. Jenny Cudd filed a motion this week to ask a federal judge for permission to head to Mexico this morning on a "work retreat." Cudd is the owner of Becky's Flowers in Midland, Texas, and has been charged with two misdemeanor offenses, entering a federal building without permission and engaging in disorderly conduct according to USA Today.
Cudd put up photos and videos on her Facebook of her at the Capitol, with one of the captions stating “I was here today on Jan. 6th when the new revolution started at the Capitol," per the Daily Mail website.
Lawyers for Cudd say that the business owner has a prepaid Mexico retreat planned for herself and her employees, along with their spouses. The court filing states that the trip would "serve as a work-related bonding time for employees and their spouses," according to CBS Austin.
The terms of Cudd's release state that she is not allowed outside the State of Texas and any international travel must be approved by a judge. She is also not allowed near Washington, D.C. unless there for court, pretrial purposes, or to consult with her attorney. Her lawyers also point out that she has no criminal history and that her pretrial service officer doesn't object to the work trip.
So far, no word yet on whether or not the judge will allow her to have some fun in the sun down in Mexico for the "work retreat."
